Every Promise of your Word
"From the breaking of the dawn to the setting of the sun,I will stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.Words of power, strong to save, that will never pass away,I will stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.For Your covenant is sure,And on this I am secure—I can stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.
When I stumble and I sin, condemnation pressing in,I will stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.You are faithful to forgive that in freedom I might live,So I stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.Guilt to innocence restored,You remember sins no more—So I'll stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.
When I'm faced with anguished choice, I will listen for Your voice,And I'll stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.Through this dark and troubled land You will guide me with Your handAs I stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.And You've promised to completeEv'ry work begun in me—So I'll stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.
Hope that lifts me from despair, love that casts out ev'ry fear,As I stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word.Not forsaken, not alone, for the Comforter has come,And I stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word. Grace sufficient, grace for me, Grace for all who will believe—We will stand on ev'ry promise of Your Word."

May we consider the goodness of God in sending His Son!
"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore, God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

I'm currently cleaning houses for a lady in the mornings and afternoons, and by nights I make calls for a library collection agency. They are okay jobs and have provided for my needs the past almost 8 months, while I'm finishing up school! I know it has been the Lord's provision for me, yet lately I've been desiring differ jobs or at least one main job.
here's the options:
1. stay where I am, and persevere through it...knowing, that I will have no social life next semester b/c the way my class schedule falls is Tuesday and Thursday nights in class...which makes me work: Mon, wed, Fri. nights and sat. aka--no time for Prayer at my church Wed. night and say good-bye to Friday night social events...realizing it would only be for a semester.
2. apply, apply, apply for jobs! either Starbucks or perhaps some type of social-service job, that I would hopefully be able to practically help women and children and apply what I'm learning in my studies!
Please Pray for me in this! It's hard to know what would be Best!? Thankfully, we know He leads faithfully!
...on a side note: you should know that my collection agency job has given a 10% bonus of my earnings this year and tonight just gave me an additional bonus for my job performance! They are extremely generous! And, it's come a great time too! Praise God for providing extra surprises for me, to stir my heart in worship to Him! Therefore, I know that He will lead me to know how to spend time next semester! Just need Wisdom! It just would be hard to give up every night of the week, and not be able to use it in other ways....? What do you think?
On an AMAZING note...It's almost Christmas!! Our King Jesus was Born! We have so much to be thankful for, our Savior humbled Himself and came to earth in a form of a baby and yet is fully King!
(5 days and counting I'll be back in McKinney-DFW area--another one God's blessings that Christ has bought for me at the Cross--the joy of family and fellowship!)
